Retail Focus 6/29/18 – Party City Jumps Into Toys; Amazon’s Pharmacy Play; AI in Vegas

Another retailer attempts to take advantage of Toys “R” Us’ disappearance, as Party City announces intentions to open seasonal toy stores in the U.S. We discuss Amazon’s purchase of PillPack, and why it may not end the retail pharmacy industry as we know it after all; additionally, we talk The Container Store’s new experiment, and Bed Bath & Beyond earnings. Our guests are Justine Santa Cruz of Satisfi Labs and Wendy Albert of the Miracle Mile Shops in Las Vegas, who discuss a new social media-based technology initiative.
